A cranial bone defect is an abnormality that develops in the skull. There are six major cranial bones in the skull: frontal, ethmoid, parietal, sphenoid, temporal and occipital. These bones can develop defects, which can be either congenital or acquired.
Congenital cranial bone defects can develop due to problems during pregnancy or while giving birth. If a pregnant woman suffers a physical trauma or leads an unhealthy lifestyle during pregnancy, it can affect the development of the fetus’ cranial bones. If the cranial bone defects are minor, the development of the child may continue as normal and the defects may only be visible with imaging tests. If the cranial bone defects are more serious, the abnormality may visibly alter the shape of the skull. The head may look disproportionately large or small, or be an unusual shape. Moreover, a cranial bone defect may also affect the brain, causing problems in mental development and the patient’s overall health. If a cranial bone defect compresses the brain after the birth, it can be a medical emergency which requires immediate medical attention, as there is a risk of internal bleeding.
In some cases, cranial bone defects are acquired as a consequence of traumas or accidents involving a blunt or penetrating instrument. With head traumas, there is a risk of internal bleeding and concussion, even if the injured person appears fine at the time of the accident. People who have suffered a head injury should be taken immediately to the hospital emergency department for a check-up to make sure that the brain structure is intact and functioning normally.
